- Wedding: May 2009
I’m new to the boards but hoping to get some help with a gift for an upcoming wedding. I’ll be giving the newlyweds what’s called a gratitude tree.. below is a picture.

For this gratitude tree I’d like to customize it to fit as a wedding gift. Basically what you do with it is hang the tags from the tree with some ribbon or whatever you choose. We will be using ribbons in the colors of their wedding but I’m having such a hard time deciding on what to place on the tags and would like to get your thoughts.
Since there are over 250 invited to the wedding I’d just like to something more personal, otherwise if it was a small wedding I’d just have the guests write them well wishes or toasts.But since I can’t do that I need to get creative.. should I do wedding sayings or advice (like never go to bed angry),personal messages from close family members.. someone also mentioned typing up recipes from family members, rolling them up and tying them onto the tree.
I plan on also adding some wedding embelishments to a few of the tags, I just need to figure out some good things to write on the other tags and am hoping you guys can help me brainstorm!
